Description

Born into slavery in 1861, Callie House started the Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association, which sought African-American pensions based on those offered Union soldiers, a movement so powerful it frightened the US government; upset Jim Crow legislatures across the South; and gave hope to hundreds of thousands of destitute former slaves. Berry reclaims this magnificent heroine who, though so long forgotten that the site of her grave is unknown, emerges as a pioneering activist: a female forerunner of both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Cosponsored by the Museum of Afro American History and the Center for New Words.
